Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 265)


The structure and the composition of the (111), (100) and (110) oriented surfaces of single crystal samples of the ordered Pt3Sn compound were studied by low energy Ne+ scattering and other surface sensitive techniques (mainly XPS and LEED). The LEISS results for all three low index surfaces show that the surface plane contains both Pt and Sn and indicate an outward displacement of Sn atoms from the plane of Pt atoms.
